Up with the Lark's!
More variety with that than Oldfield's album. First few minutes of it are OK, but I do wander from it.

I actually never heard that one. I chose these two in part because they are both from 1973.

I am a big fan of Tubular Bells (Oldfieldīs best), but itīs still Larks. KC is just so much greater to me. Not matter whatever Oldfield album there will be against any KC seventies album (if for example Tubular Bells vs Discipline itīs Tubular then).

Tubular Bells, iconic album! Larks' is good, but I rate a good number of Crimson albums higher.

Not me. It's my absolute favorite. However, for a while I just thought it was whacked out and I didn't get it. That is until I realized it being so crazy is what made it so special. No other KC album like that.

LTIA. The first movement of Tubular Bells is great, but it peters out pretty quickly thereafter.

to take the place of the mud shark in your mythology...

Voted for Larks'. I agree with Doug that if it had been Ommadawn would have been different... closer but still would have voted for Larks'. That's just a great album. I do like Ommadawn a lot though.

Larks is not my favorite, but really high (I think only Court, Red & Lizard are ahead of it, Wake also quite the same level). Anyway together with Starless & Bible it has one of the quietest & loudest KC in same album and thatīs really great! And I really loved that album at the moment I heard it first time, as also other KC seventies albums! But itīs little bit funny I didnīt get into KC same time when I get into prog, I just heard then "Epitaph" & "the Court Of the Crimson King"-songs and they sounded me too pathetic. But some years after that I heard "In the Court"-album as whole and so started my KC-love!

Interesting juxtaposition! LTIA is probably my fave KC record and era, so no brainer.
